    I am per diem, so I do not earn ETO/PTO.

    I must be available to work 8 months out of the year for at least 40 hours per 4 week scheduling cycle, and one holiday per calendar year.

    I get 3 weeks PTO per year and, I think, 8 personal/holiday time days. New hires start at 2 weeks PTO. You can roll over year to year. The amount you can cap at depends on years served, for me it is 250hrs, but that does not include personal time.

    I'm not sure about sick leave - I don't think we get that where I work. We do get 21 days of PTO per year. A lot of people have been using theirs on call out days since I live in an area of the country with awful, awful pay. It sounds like most people in my unit don't really get to use PTO as PTO.

    I get 3 weeks a year. This is my first year, and 11 months in I have not had a vacation because you have to put in for vacation at the beginning of the year, when I was just starting. This does not include sick time, as my facility does not allow you to use sick time until you have 80 hours built up, which takes a year. Overall I'm not complaining, three weeks a cation time is pretty great compared to where I used to work. Just disagree with having to work a year before you can use any sick pay when you work with sick people.

    The only time I've ever had a WEEK off was when I was hit by a car and got admitted to the hospital myself. Typical: "No, I'm sorry ... I can give you Tuesday and Wednesday off that week, but then I need you Saturday." Gee ... swell. So then I end up burning PTO in 4 hour blocks during low census periods and when I move on to a different job, I take the PTO in the form of a nice big CHECK. Vacation? What's that?

    *** I used to be on the same tread mill. Always using my PTO to maintain my pay check to same after being called off anywhere from 4-12 hours a week.
    After a lot of searching I found a nice health system and hospital to work for. We are union, get paid decently, get 8 hour vacation and 4 hours sick time / per period and our hours are guaranteed. I don't mean that every nurse's hours are guaranteed, but my department's are since we only staff one of us at a time.

    I work part-time, 12 hour shifts. I never have to use PTO and each month, when I'm making my schedule, I always schedule myself to have 7-8 days off in a row without affecting my required hours. So I guess you could say I get at least 6-7 days off in a row each month.

    Earned vacation time increases per years of service. I started with 4 weeks... after 5 years I earn 5 weeks..etc.

    We don't get a set amount per year. We earn a certain amount each 2 week pay period. how much you earn each pay period increases with senority. I currently get about 5 hours of sick time and 5 hours of vacation time each pay period. So really, I'm earnin 10 hours of paid time off every two weeks, which is pretty good.


    I like how our sick time is seperate from our vacation time. If one has a prolonged illness where I work, one need not cancel one's vacation 'cause they burned through all their PTO. I think it's stupid to have just a single "PTO bank".
